Texas masters, stay safe and report how you are faring amid Harvey

NBC reports that the eye of Hurricane Harvey made landfall on the Texas coast late Friday, and the Category 4 storm could cause “catastrophic flooding.” My thoughts are with all our masters friends, including Houston Elites led by Bill Collins and throwers such as Carol Finsrud. I hope y’all aren’t affected by the monster rains. Let us know how you’re doing. I’m also curious about how Seth Brower’s Texas meets are affected. His 5th annual Texas Vs. The World meet is October 14-15 at Texas State University in San Marcos. Other meets could be impacted as well. I hope everyone is safe and heeding official warnings (even via the Fake News outlets). Katrina should have taught us something. (Meanwhile, sorry, Rex, that they named a storm after you.)

    We need to reach out – if you need a place until the water goes down – how do we let people know?

    It has finally stopped raining here in Houston so now the long and slow recovery will start. There are a lot of people that have lost everything. I spoke with Bill and had to evacuate his home. Hopefully this storm will finally move out of the area.
